The salary of a clinical medicine officer in Kenya range between Ksh 30,000 and Ksh90,000 depending on the hospital they work for. Those working for government institutions like KNH earn an average salary of Ksh40,000. For private hospitals like Aga Khan and Karen Hospitals, the salary can go up to Ksh90,000.
The qualification also matters. Someone with a degree in clinical medicine earns more than one with a diploma course. With a degree, one would earn in excess of Ksh 60,000 but for a diploma, the salary will be less than Ksh70,000.
